The Afmæli Class is FULL. If you would like to on the wait list, please message us through the Contact Page.
In this five session (plus a bonus sixth for show and tell) class, students will start from scratch and end up with their own version of the Afmæli Pullover, a traditional Lopapeysa from Lopi Yarns of Iceland.
Afmæli means “anniversary” in Icelandic, and was designed to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Lopi yarns.
Denise Bell of Lost City Knits will walk students through the project, from initial color choice and swatching, to casting on, knitting in the round, joining sleeves to body, adding short row shaping for a pleasing fit, grafting underarms, and washing and blocking. If you have knit a hat before, you are ready for this class.
The series will be held over twelve weeks in early 2022 via Zoom.
Class will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 Central Standard Time.
Class dates are:
There will be a bonus Show and Tell on either March 11 or 22, depending on progress.
This pattern is free and uses Lettlopi Aran weight yarn. Enrolled students will be entitled to a 10% coupon for Lettlopi yarns from Lost City Knits for this project.
Class is $250 for the five sessions. There will be a limit of ten students.
For students who would prefer this sweater as a cardigan, we’ve offering an add-on session HERE that will incorporate a steek and button band. You’ll need to purchase both this class and the steeking session in advance of the first session in January.
Cancellation Policy – Half the cost of the class can be refunded until two weeks before the first class. After that, half the cost can be refunded only if we are able to fill the vacated space.
